The Calgary Film Centre is Alberta's first purpose-built facility for the film, television, and creative industries. The Centre includes a warehouse building with rentable workshop spaces and the Calgary Film Centre office, as well as a studio building with three soundstages. A central spine building joins the warehouse and soundstages, and provides a common circulation area. The rentable workshop unit space can be used for a variety of soundstage support activities, such as open concept offices or a wardrobe and make-up area. All workshop unit spaces and soundstage spaces are individually metered for billing purposes. The project was designed in accordance with City of Calgary Great Plains Industrial Park Sustainable Design Guidelines.
Smith + Andersen was engaged as the mechanical consultant for the project. The soundstage mechanical systems are equipped with customized acoustic lining to address stakeholder requirements for noise mitigation. All mechanical units are located in the acoustically-separated central spine building, in order to maintain a consistent sound barrier from overhead sources.
